With the James Ay x Twenty/Twenty collaboration we’ve created an expression, which outlines what happens in the intersection between Nordic, stoic feminism and the modern masculinity found in the far East.
CREATIVE DIRECTION / EYEWEAR DESIGN / EYEWEAR PRODUCTION
The model 'Shibuya' is a collaboration between James Ay and Twenty/Twenty studio. The inspiration comes from vintage models and Japanese shapes.
The models straight top curve and rounded bottom together with the shiny outside and matte, sandblasted, inside creates an interesting contrast between femininity and masculinity.
The name ‘Shibuya' comes from the shopping district, which surrounds one of Tokyo's busiest railway stations. This area is known as one of the fashion centers of Japan, particularly for young people, and as a major nightlife area.
